'72 FINS WATCHING COLTS

If the Indianapolis Colts win at Cincinnati today, they will become the 16th team in NFL history to win their first 10 games.

The only team in the modern era to finish the regular season undefeated is the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went on to win the Super Bowl. Each year, Dolphins players from that team gather for a toast when the last NFL unbeaten team is defeated.

"It's not really a concern to us right now," Jim Kiick, who rushed for 521 yards for the Dolphins in 1972, recently told the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram. "They've got some pretty tough games coming up. If they start going 10-0, 11-0, then it's something to start getting concerned about. But it's going to be very difficult.''

In addition to Cincinnati, the Colts still have to play Pittsburgh, San Diego, Seattle and the Jaguars at Alltel Stadium on Dec. 11. The Colts' final seven opponents have a combined record of 36-27.

Still, Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson, whose team lost to the Colts twice this season by a combined 69-37, doesn't expect Indy to lose.

"I know they've got a tough schedule, but they're great -- the best team in football," Robinson said in the Star-Telegram. "I don't care who they play. I think they're going unbeaten.''

TWO FOR THE ROAD

Speaking of the Colts and Bengals, Cincinnati QB Carson Palmer and WR Chad Johnson this week recounted the story of their two-hour drive to Indianapolis last year to watch Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison play in a Monday night game.

"It was just a good chance to see what they do and how they do it, and steal some stuff from them and just try to get to where they are,'' Palmer told reporters in a conference call this week.
